Bristol is the city that just doesn’t stop giving. For decades now, the place has been a hotbed for some of the most forward thinking names in underground electronic music, the kind of people who inspire hundreds of pop-up copycat producers across the globe. So it gives me great pleasure to offer you an introduction to one of the city’s latest treasures, Sly One. Despite having only been together since the back end of 2011, the production trio have already manage to snag themselves gigs at some of Bristol’s best club nights alongside big names, such as MJ Cole, French Fries and Zed-Bias to name just a few.
Sounds interesting, yeah? Well fortunately enough, the guys have kindly provided us with a free track to give away! With sweeter-than-sugar RnB vocals lifted from Faith Evans’ 1998 hit of the same name, Love like this romps along ominously, stuttering bass pulses turning the soulful vocals slightly sour. Starting at a slow pace the track steadily cranks up the pressure, allowing for a heart pumping release about a third of the way through; it’s the sort of thing that dance floors were made for.
Clocking in at almost 6 minutes, if Love like this has done enough to whet your appetite for more deep end bass music then you’re in luck, as the trio have an EP planned for both digital and vinyl release later this year. (We’ll keep you posted on the details)
